Bill of Rights in Action: The Privilege Against Self-Incrimination.
Here, director Bernard Wilets crafts a legal argument set in a futuristic setting, in which a "Truth Machine" extracts past actions by reading minds. The film explains that the Fifth amendment protects the accused against coerced confessions, but questions what happens to this and other guarantees of the Constitution under the impact of advanced technologies. These are the questions argued by lawyers in this dramatic film with a purposely undecided ending. The prosecutor is played by noted legal scholar James Quinn Wilson.
